Google is the number one search engine in the whole world. Everybody uses it to search information and web sites etc. But very few people can use it as a calculator. Here is how you can use Google as a calculator :
Visit http://www.google.com/. Type and term in search box you want to evaluate. For example, 5 + 5 and press Enter. You would see the result as shown below.
You can use a number of usual expressions to get your results as listed in this table :
|a + b||addition of a and b||5 + 5|
|a – b||subtract b from a||5 – 5|
|a * b||multiply a and b||5 * 5|
|a / b||divide a by b||5 / 5|
|a ^ b||ab||5 ^ 5|
|a % of b||a percent of b||5 % of 5|
|a mod b||modulo (divide a by b and return remainder)||5 mod 5|
|ath root of b||find ath root of b||4th root of 256|
If you want to evaluate expressions containing advanced mathematicals terms like trigonometric expressions, logarithmic functions etc., then you have to type in special terms as shown in the following picture :
You can find more details about the advanced mathematical expressions on this page : http://www.googleguide.com/calculator.html.
You can use Google to convert units of length, volume and currency etc. For example, I have a friend living in Tokyo, Japan and I want to tell her the Yen (Japanese currency) equivalent od 100 US Dollars.
